WALK ON THE WILD SIDE, ALASKA ZOO 5OTH ANNIVERSARY FUNDRAISER

  • The Alaska Zoo 4731 O'Malley Road Anchorage, AK, 99507 United States (map)

REGISTRATION FOR THIS EVENT IS NOW CLOSED.

Full Event Description: The Alaska Zoo is celebrating 50 years of service to the wildlife and people of Alaska. Our doors opened in 1969 and our mission continues to thrive with your support.

We are commemorating this golden anniversary with a brand new summer affair which will give you experiences of a lifetime. Our annual fundraising gala formerly known as “Feast for the Beasts” has been reinvented to a “Walk on the Wild Side” – a catered walking picnic with special animal experiences.

Join us Thursday, June 13th from 6pm to 9pm.

Guests can expect:

  • A stroll through the zoo with special animal enrichment.

  • Presentations by zoo experts.

  • A walking picnic with food catered by 49th State Brewing, The Bridge Seafood and Altura Bistro. Beer and wine supplied by K&L Distributors.

  • Dessert on the lawn catered by Alaska Cake Studio.

  • A spirited live auction along with games and prizes.

  • This is a 21 and over event.

  • Dress is casual for this walking picnic theme.

  • Motorized cart rides for pre-arranged guests with mobility concerns.

While the format has changed, the goal of the event is the same – to raise crucial funds for the Alaska Zoo’s General Fund, the money used to cover zoo operating expenses and animal care.

We invite you to spend this wildly elegant evening with your Alaska Zoo family! We appreciate your support.
